Has anyone been having any luck up by the Red Wing Dam or near the Bridge in Red Wing (down from park)? Saugers starting to bite? Has the recent cold weather cooled the water enough to get walleyes to begin movement up from Pepin to the Dam area?

also, I hear there is a Sauger tourney going on this weekend out of Everts. Any info on that?

Sauger and walleye bite is starting to get hot. Blades and ringworms are the best choices. The saugerama is at Everts this Sat. Everts has a website and Dean will be happy provide any info you need.

Are they biting on the lake or more up by Everts? I was on Pepin the weekend before last and I couldn't buy a walleye. I was wondering if it would be worth the trip again. I see the water temp has settled in at 49 for the last couple of days.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
